NetSuite for Wholesale Distribution - Certified Implementation
WE KNOW LEAD TO ORDER TO FULFILLMENT TO CASH
(AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN)
Our NetSuite for Wholesale Distribution Consultants have worked in 500,000 sq foot facilities with 30 loading doors and state-of-the-art conveyor and scan systems that can process thousands of orders a day. And we’ve worked in 4,000 sq foot warehouses for fast-growing businesses who are finding that a paper-based process for picking 20 orders a day just doesn’t scale to 1000 orders a day. (At least, not without hiring a dozen more staff). And don’t even get us started on taking orders when you don’t have inventory to fill those orders.
Bottom line – we know that if you don’t get the flow from order to fulfillment working smoothly, growth is going to be challenging. Heck, just doing business TOMORROW is going to be challenging.
WHY IS NETSUITE FOR WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION SO COMPLICATED?
After all, what’s there to go wrong in “customer places order (for inventory that you actually HAVE); order is sent down to the warehouse; warehouse waves the order and pick-pack-ships it; customer is charged for the shipped items. Website updates, showing customer’s order status”?
Simple, right? But then there’s the problem of maintaining accurate inventory levels in the warehouse. And getting that inventory back to the website (so you don’t accept orders you can’t fill).. And making sure items exist in the warehouse AND the website. And the 3PL will only accept orders in a certain format and their inventory reports are sometimes inaccurate. And what about cancellations on the website. Oh, and cancellations in the warehouse too (back to those inaccurate inventory reports . . .). And some customers have multiple profiles too.
And then there’s returns. Everyone hates returns. Everyone. Even people doing the returns hate them. People hate them so much they call them a different name (Reverse logistics). You wouldn’t give your worst enemy the job of managing returns. But returns are a fact of life, up there with death and taxes.
Organized and professional with deep retail industry experience, their strong NetSuite and Supply Chain expertise helped us to bring our company live successfully.
